Money And Life - Poem by ty. bohls

Isn't Money Funny?

Money, money, moneyIsn’t it funny?
Some crave for a penny
Some own cores many
When I was younger
I would believe indeed
That money is not all
That we need
But we grow up
And so we learn
That we earn to live
And live to earn
Food, clothing and shelter
Is not everything we require
These things even
A beggar does acquire
I thought all we need
Is love and friends
And our search
For happiness there ends
But in this world
Nothing comes for free
To win these too
Money holds the key
Money not, only god,
Earning the only prayer
Spending the only religion,
It’s the only thing we care.

    Pretty true... although it is possible to live a happy life without much money. A little is good to have, though :) (Report)Reply

    You forgot to mention one thing
    Money brings comfort
    Not happiness
    It is the evil thing in human beings
    It can destroy them
